I am BEYOND excited to finally share our revamped master bathroom with you all! Feels like I’ve been working on it forever, and I can genuinely say that after all these weeks, I love the outcome even more than I expected!
Floor & Decor has such a wide-variety of in-stock products at amazing deals, that following the tour, I had so many ideas floating through my head I could barely harness them! However, given time and budget (minor details!), I needed to choose a project that was manageable (especially since this was my first major home improvement project ever!) and felt our master bathroom was the most logical space to tackle. Plus, it was a relatively blank slate when we moved in — white shaker cabinets and neutral floors, basic builder grade lighting, hardware, glass enclosure, tile, granite countertop, and fixtures.
I could see the bathroom’s underlying potential immediately, but also knew we’d have to live with some of the bigger ticket items until a larger budget renovation was possible (i.e. shower enclosure, shower tile, and tub area). I even swapped out the cabinet hardware when we first moved in thinking it would make a difference…but really it was a small bandaid.
With an initial design plan that involved removing the builder grade mirror and sink faucets, patching up the subsequent holes, and eliminating the standard traditional brushed nickel sconces from the wall, this clean slate opened the door to a plethora of possibilities!
I had been eyeing Floor & Decor’s Villa Artisan frost porcelain tile in 3x12 for some time and decided our vanity wall was the ideal spot to install it in a herringbone pattern. It fit the beachy, organic vibe I was aiming for, and balanced out the shiny “newness” of our new construction digs perfectly. I also loved the juxtaposition of its high gloss, white porcelain subway tile classic look with its imperfect hammered, random texture.
Once the tile installation was complete, large polished nickel mirrors and fixtures were added, along with glass pendant lights, a big woven seagrass laundry basket, and a stunning one-of-a-kind Turkish vintage runner. Fresh blooms and greenery were also a natural must!
I seriously cannot believe this space went from this…
I could not have chosen a more perfect tile for this wall and look forward to tackling the other side of the bathroom sometime next year!
Hanukkah begins on Sunday evening and I literally JUST unboxed our decorations yesterday. How is it possible that this holiday season is flying by so quickly?!
SHOP THE LOOK
Since it’s our first Hanukkah in the new house, and our collection of lights, garland, and ornaments worked perfectly in our previous smaller homes, I’m looking to add to what we have with some new pretty pieces I’ve found across the web.
The Festival of Lights can be challenging to decorate for since there are VERY limited “Hanukkah” designated products available. Unlike Christmas, where stores sell a plethora pf styles to choose from, Hanukkah items tend to be less than modern looking and somewhat kitchy. I’m not really sure why, it’s just the way it’s been.
Over the years I’ve had to get creative. My favorite thing to do in lieu of the more, ahem, tacky pieces I’ve come across, is to add little Christmas ornaments in blue ombre hues to big glass vases. It’s easy, pretty, and the vases can be used again throughout the year
Anyway, back to decorating and wrapping presents I go! Cheers to the upcoming Eight Crazy Nights!
